What is Botox? 

BOTOX® Cosmetic (or Botulinum Toxin Type A), also known as a Neurotoxin, is widely known in the United States as an effective anti-aging option. Botox works by reducing the muscle activity and movement that cause the formation of wrinkles. It can help reduce moderate to severe lines and wrinkles on your face while also improving skin tone and restoring youthful vibrancy - all without surgery or downtime!

Botox works by reducing the muscle activity and movement that cause the formation of wrinkles.

  • Eliminates lines on the forehead, brow (Glabella), and around the eyes (crow’s feet)
  • No downtime
  • Lasts 3-5 months
  • Quick, easy and painless

How Botox Works

Botox injections provide a safe, effective method to reduce wrinkles which are caused by frequently contracted facial muscles. Through targeted blocking of the nerve signals between muscle and brain, Botox prevents nerve impulses from reaching the muscles. It freezes those contractions that cause furrowed brows or crow's feet. As a result, the muscle doesn’t receive the message to contract. Without the contraction, lines and wrinkles won’t form allowing relaxed skin structure for an overall rejuvenated appearance. Hence why Botox is also considered preventative. 

The Results of Botox

Botox is used for both aesthetic and medical purposes. Botox for aesthetics has proven to be effective at softening wrinkles around the facial area, including the forehead, frown lines, crow's feet and neck. The effects can vary from person to person, but many people experience substantial improvement within days of injection. In addition to providing aesthetic benefits, Botox has also been shown to reduce migraine headaches, excessive sweating, and muscle spasms. Botox is generally well tolerated with minimal side effects and no required downtime.

FAQs about Botox 

What areas of the face can be treated with Botox?

Through injections with a precise, ultra-fine needle, this powerful neuromodulator temporarily blocks nerve signals that cause muscle contractions which are responsible for creating those troublesome creases. Areas include forehead, glabella, crow’s feet, bunny lines, gummy teeth, lip flip, orange peel chin, platysmal neck bands and more. After getting injected at designated target areas you will gradually begin to notice results over 3-7 days post treatment - giving you smoother looking skin!

How does a Botox treatment feel?

Botox treatments offer a convenient and easy way to achieve the appearance you want without any downtime. It takes about 10-15 minutes to get a Botox treatment. Your injector will insert an ultra fine needle into the specified area, injecting a small amount of neurotoxin liquid into the wrinkle. The procedure is generally painless, though some clients report a slight, temporary discomfort. Whether it's during your lunch break or after work, this minimally-invasive procedure requires no anesthesia and causes minimal discomfort so that you can immediately return back to life as usual!

Is Botox painful?

Most patients find the injection procedure to be a brief and manageable experience, with no lingering discomfort. This sensation quickly dissipates once the treatment is finished.

How soon will I see my Botox results?

Botox is a popular choice for many looking to improve their appearance, but the wait time can vary from individual to individual. Generally speaking, most people will see results within 3-5 days – sometimes even sooner! In some cases, it may take up to two weeks until the true effects are fully realized.

How long will my Botox results last?

Botox offers long-lasting skin smoothing results, allowing patients to maintain a youthful look with regular maintenance treatments every 3-4 months. The initial injection can last between 3 and 5 months as the body slowly metabolizes it - however when repeated, you'll find yourself ready for your next event or special occasion in no time!

Is Botox safe?

Botox treatments have been approved by the FDA to reverse signs of aging and eliminate the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. While this treatment is safe for most people, pregnant women, breastfeeding mothers, and those suffering from certain neurological conditions should avoid using this remedy for a smoother complexion.

What is the difference between Botox and other neuromodulators like Xeomin or Dysport?

All Neurotoxins produce a smoother, more youthful appearance without surgery. Results of a Botox injection show up in 3-4 days and last about 3-5 months. Dysport results tend to show up more quickly and—in some cases—last longer than Botox. Xeomin offers the feature of being free from additives—allowing the body to build up a reaction to it over time—and its effects are long-lasting.
